FishBites Strips on GA Coast?

Thread starter #1
I was just wondering if anyone has used any of the FishBites strips around the coast and had any luck with them? If so what flavor/ color, and what fish did they work on? Any opinions and thoughts welcome.
 
I've used them in shrimp and clam flavor and caught whiting with them. Worked almost as well as shrimp, but is tougher and stays on longer. More fish with less bait. Might want to fish shrimp and fish bites side by side to check your results.

Thanks for the replies. I used the shrimp flavored ones in FL this year and they seem to work well there. I will try some of the clam and other flavor ones while I'm down in Jekyll next month and let everyone know how they work for me. I'm just trying to get some advice on what has worked in the past. Once again thank y'all!!

shrimp and sandflea flavor. Pink or orange are my go to colors. I like to fish a small chunk of fishbites tipped with a piece of shrimp. This seems to get hit harder, but I have caught plenty of whiting, reds, and black drum on straight fishbites.

A hand tied pompano rig is one of the things I'm going to try, both single and double drops according to how deep the water is. Thinking about doubling some shrimp/fishbites together and some squid/ fishbites together. Going to mix it up and see if I can find a great combination. I'm looking for good table fish like whiting, flounder, red's, blue fish, I'll even keep the catfish if they are brace enough to bite..😁.. Thanks for all the great info guys!!
